Mini Candy Cane Valentine Pops {with an XOXO tag tutorial} #valentine

mini candy cane Valentine pops

I think I first saw these candy cane hearts on the Idea Room several years ago, & I’ve always wanted to try them out. Amy heated her candy canes to help stick them together, & they turned out sooooo cute. Then I saw a similar candy cane heart idea on A Little Bit Funky, & it didn’t involve the oven…so I knew that was the one for me!  ha! You’ll have to check out both tutorials to see how to make these.  They are both soooo easy!

I did want to show you how I made some cute
XOXO tags to attach to my pops using my PSA Essential stamper.

First I cut out the hearts with my Silhouette using red card stock.
Then I stamped each heart with an XOXO PSA Essential Peel & Stick stamp.

Then I just punched a small hole in each of my finished hearts.

Added some twine…

…& then I tied the tags around my Valentine pops. Easy & cute!

Just in case you were wondering I found these adorable paper straws over at DK DeleKtables. I always buy my paper straws from them. They have an ah-mazing selection, & they always ship super fast. You should definitely check them out on facebook or over at their shop. 😉
